The Jemez Riders Motorcycle Group would like to thank everyone that helped/volunteered/sponsored our benefit ride Saturday, Aug. 1 and supported our raffle to raise funds for Wyatt Taylor and his family. Such an awesome group effort!
Congratulations to Monica Maes who won the raffle for a 30-minute helicopter ride for herself and two guests which was generously donated by Classic Air Medical.
Even though the barbecue in Jemez Springs had to be canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Jemez Riders are very pleased to announce that we managed to raise $8,200.
Now comes the next challenge; we would like to see if we can raise a little more money for Wyatt’s ongoing medical expenses so we are challenging the community to donate to a Paypal account set up by his parents Lee and Michelle Taylor at https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/michelletaylor955?locale.x=en_US to see if we can round off what we raised to $10,000.
